Warehouses and Data Centers to Replace Concrete Plant
Sterling, Va. (November 14, 2022) – JK Land Holdings, LLC (JKLH) has proposed a site plan for 112 acres it owns in Leesburg, Va. The highly industrial land off Cochran Mills Road currently houses asphalt and concrete plants. The new plan calls for transitioning the land for warehouse and data center use.
“We look forward to working with the county to make this available for commerce—including warehouses and data centers. Cochran Mills area is tucked away and long been used for heavy industrial, so our plan is a good fit and will contribute to the county’s growth,” said Chuck Kuhn, CEO, JKLH, and Founder and CEO, JK Moving Services. “This is also consistent with our goal to balance growth with preservation.”
According to Loudoun Economic Development, data centers add significant tax revenue to the county and are anticipated to generate more than $600 million in revenue for the county this year, creating $11.50 in local tax revenue for every dollar of services provided. JKLH’s proposed plan will also clean up the current site.
Other recent JKLH projects include buying 135 acres of land in Prince William off of Wellington Road for commercial, industrial and data center development and two properties totaling 94 acres in Manassas, Va. zoned for commercial and light industrial and a portion for heavy industrial. JKLH has a partnership with Yondr Group, a global leader, developer, owner operator and service provider of hyperscale data centers, and have acquired of 270 acres in Loudoun and Prince William Counties to support the delivery of 500MW of critical IT capacity.
In addition to buying and developing land, JKLH and the Kuhn family have conserved more than 22,000 acres of land—land greater than the size of Manhattan—ensuring vulnerable vistas and habitats are preserved and protected for future generations, including: 128-acre Loudoun riverfront property that was donated to NOVA Parks; 135-acre Westpark golf course in Leesburg that is being transformed into a park; 87-acre JK Black Oak Wildlife Sanctuary; 150-acres in Purcellville used to start the JK Community Farm, a charitable effort that alleviates hunger by growing chemical free crops and livestock and donating them to local foodbanks; and 42 acres in St. Louis, one of Loudoun’s first African American townships, to protect from development.
Kuhn and his companies have won numerous awards, including being recognized by the Washington Business Journal as a Top Corporate Philanthropist and the Old Dominion Land Conservancy for their conservation efforts.
